A study funded by CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program, titled: “CMIP5 Model Simulations of the Impacts of the Two Types of El Nino on U.S. Winter Temperature,” was accepted for publication by the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres.

A global perspective on CMIP5 climate model biases 3 March 2014

A global perspective on CMIP5 climate model biases

Researched funded by CPO’s MAPP program was published in Nature Climate Change on Feb. 23.  Scientists at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) led a new study to be published in Nature Climate Change, identifies a path forward to reduce or eliminate global sea surface temperature biases in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Assessments resulting in greater confidence in climate model projections.
